08/14/08 - Miss Shapely Loots The Safe

We finally found the Mad Magazine cartoon that inspired the series Alias. We used to love watching Jennifer Gardner crawling through airshafts to steal enemy plans while wearing a stylish tulle evening dress or rappelling down the side of a skyscraper in Hong Kong or Cairo in a silver lame pantsuit. Of course, we knew where JJ Abrams got the original idea. It was Mad Magazine, as you can see.

From Mad Magazine #80 July 1963 (George Woodbridge & Harry Purvis)
